Bungie officially moves on

The last few days have been filled with rumors of a split between Microsoft and Bungie. Sadly, this story has moved on from rumor to truth with Microsoft announcing today that Bungie will be leaving to form its own independent company.For now, Microsoft will retain an equity interest in Bungie as well as the publishing agreement between the two in regards to all “Halo” intellectual property.

Is it just me or does Microsoft seem to be snake-bit this year? Just when it seemed like they were bouncing back from a very rough summer, their most significant partnership has now dissolved, tainting the great success of Halo 3 a bit.

Regardless, I have had the good fortune of meeting some of the great people at Bungie and I wish them all the success in the world with their new venture into independence.
